Today is Michael's birthday. We are going to see the Fantasticks at Portland Center Stage - it's the last performance.
Today is also Christopher Guest's birthday, as well as William Burroughs. So Michael is in good company.
Holly tried to convince us last night that Brokeback Mountain is a great movie. I haven't seen it. I do know it's taken from a short story written by a woman, and the screenplay was written by a straight couple. Would the script be any different if a gay man had written it? I don't know.
I made a cherry pie for Michael's birthday.
We have an addition to our gnome family. He carries a lantern. Some myths say that gnomes roam at night and during the day turn into toads; other myths say sunlight turns them into stone.
The word gnome derives from the Greek gnosis, meaning knowledge. Some say gnomes hoarded knowledge like treasure.
Others just like how they look in the garden.
